    a spark tester will let you know if you have spark its a samll light that goes between a spark plug and the wire that blinks when power passes through it.

    check to make sure the fuel is reaching the engine.

    if it is the chain the vehicle would backfire and sound real rough, if the vehicle sounds to be cranking normally it is probably in the ignition.
